So this is the second time I’ve been on the water with Daniel and I can’t wait to go back and do it all over again! The mangrove eco tour was so much fun, I got a chance to peep a manatee and I cried tears of joy. There were little baby looking crabs that tickle when they climb over you, these crazy photosynthetic jellyfish, and there was a snail looking thing he caught with his hands, he had gloves on, it was an unexpectedly very hands on tour. But pulling myself through those mangroves were so much fun!!! It was beautiful out, the weather was perfect for this tour and I got my cardio in for the day. SPECTACULAR TOUR! Absolutely must try at least once, in my case, going again next time I’m down!!

We had a great time on this kayaking trip with adults and kids age15-53. It was not strenuous and Daniel started off by explaining the best way to paddle without hurting yourself. The mangroves were beautiful and peaceful, even though the boys tipped over their kayak. Daniel handled that well too without panic or recrimination. Highly recommend.

Daniel was great! He made sure that everyone was comfortable, and that we were safe. Kayaking in the mangroves was amazing! It’s a little tight in there, so sometimes it was easier to pull your kayak forward through the water by grabbing a mangrove branch because there wasn’t a lot of room for your kayak paddle. That was very fun in itself! And there are some low branches that you need to duck under – also fun! We saw an iguana, a crab, spider, and jellyfish (we got to hold and/or touch the last three); and of course, we saw several variety of fowl. Daniel took pictures of us and of the wildlife that we saw and emailed them to us afterward! Very nice touch!

It was great getting out paddling with y'all. I'm glad you had fun pulling yourself through the trees like Tarzan; I love getting to glide through the forest. Hope you take care and good luck on your next adventures.

Hands down best time in the Keys!! We had the least experience on the tour as a family of 5 - 2 adults and 3 boys (15, 12 and 10). My husband and I each had tandem kayaks to paddle with the younger ones, while our teen paddled solo and always ahead of the pack. Daniel and his crew (Evan & Jordan) were fantastic guides and very patient especially during the challenging parts. Our middle guy was easily frustrated when we got stuck in the mangroves and all I could do was laugh (not my typical response). Our guides provided helpful tips that got us successfully through. Great abs and arm workout in a beautiful setting. Highly recommend this team!

Thank you so much! We do try and make sure everyone feels included and is having a good time. It is definitely a unique set of skills, but we love being able to share such a special place with others. Hope you have a fantastic year and I'll look for you next time you are down this way.

What can I say that hasn't already been said? Daniel is extremely knowledgeable, a fantastic guide, and generally provides a killer trip. Me and my boyfriend came down and wanted to do something more adventurous than what was posted online - we really wanted to put in some paddling mileage on our trip. Daniel put together the perfect custom trip for us at a totally reasonable rate. We started on the Gulf of Mexico, crossed under the bridge, paddled the Atlantic, crossed under the bridge again (much harder this time due to the tides), and then came up the Gulf. All told, it was about 9 mile loop in 3-4 hours, and the tides kicked our butt for about an hour, which is exactly what we wanted. I don't think our trip was a "typical" trip, as most people wouldn't want to keep the pace we kept or fight the tides like we did, which was extremely challenging for awhile (but awesome). There was some, but not an abundance, of wildlife swimming around, but we did see a manatee and a jellyfish. The water was beautiful and we had fun being out on the waves. You honestly can't go wrong with Daniel. We loved this company and this trip.

It was a blast having you both out on the water and I really had a great time getting to put some milage down. We really were moving at times. Let me know next time you're down and we will plan out some new adventures to go experience.
